Alternatively, the venue has its own signage. This image below is upside down, compared with the Google map above. The entrance to the Conference Centre is from the outside of the pink area on the map below. The Biomedicine West building is in yellow, bottom right (sorry about the quality here will replace). Newcastle Central Station is in the lower left of the picture where the M for metro sign appears. The red section is an area open to paying public and the blue is part of Newcastle University. The middle of Times Square contains restaurants and bars. 

Wifi is enabled throughout and when in signal range of the University buildings you will be able to use Eduroam.
